This set (originally released by Japanese EmArcy but thus far only made available domestically on an Inner City LP) is a set of exquisite duets by singer Nancy Harrow and her longtime guitarist Jack Wilkins. The music should appeal both to jazz vocalist and cabaret collectors, for Harrow's improvisations are quite subtle. She shows great respect for both melody and lyrics and performs mostly older material, such as "Just One of Those Things," "I've Got a Crush On You" and "Easy Living"; the occasional exceptions include Bob Marley's "Is This Love." Wilkins supports Harrow's voice quite sympathetically and has some short solos on the rather brief (all but one of the dozen songs are under three minutes) but satisfying interpretations.
